It looks like the downstream LDM process responsible for receiving NEXRAD-2 
data at your end decided that it needed to reconnect and, consequently, closed 
the connection. The closure, however, doesn't appear to have been propagated to 
the matching upstream LDM at our site. Consequently, all subsequent 
re-connection attempts were rebuffed until the matching upsteam LDM finally 
received a broken connection signal.

This might indicate a problem with our Linux Virtual Server (LVS) 
implementation (idd.unidata.ucar.edu is actually a cluster of computers served 
by LVS).

I'm investigating further and will let you know if I find anything.

Please keep me apprised of any more problems at your end.
